ADVAM in move to Fairbairn Buildings

Fairbairn Buildings

World payment solutions business ADVAM has acquired the 3,035 sq ft first floor of the Fairbairn Buildings, 70-72 Sackville Street, Manchester on a 10-year lease, real estate consultancy OBI has announced.

ADVAM, which also has teams and offices in Australia and New Zealand serving its global client base in the e-commerce, car parking, airport, shopping centres and self-service sectors, is relocating its Manchester office from Jutland House in the Northern Quarter.

It was attracted to the strong character of the recently refurbished Fairbairn Buildings, which feature restored original timber beams, cast iron columns, exposed original brickwork paired with modern industrial lighting and generous windows providing lots of natural light.

OBI represented ADVAM on its relocation, and is designing and project-managing the fit-out for the new work space.

Graham Shopland, operations director, ADVAM, said: “We are delighted to be moving to the Fairbairn Buildings. We love the period features and loft-style feel of the space and we are looking forward to moving into the new premises in November.”

Andrew Cowell, transactions and asset management, OBI, said: “It has been great to work with ADVAM on this relocation and Fairbairn Building’s offers great character space for their business.

“Our workplace design team has created a workspace that will provide them with different types of working, allow their teams to collaborate and work closely together to be successful, and I am looking forward to seeing the completed fit out.”

St Bride’s Cities is owner of Fairbairn Buildings and was represented by joint leasing agents Cushman & Wakefield and Edwards & Co.
